Not every story on every site is going to apply to me. I learned to accept that long ago. I don't find it necessary to imply that that particular fact makes it necessarily contrary to the mission statement that I want to think is the operating rule for EVERY SINGLE STORY. I know that isn't a fact.

It is an article. It has to do with policy that appears to be spreading through many US providers.

There's a very simple way of avoiding articles like this if they don't interest you. Look at the headline and don't read it.

Not everything has to be to your taste to be OK.

Seriously.

"This is a vehicle that travels from 0 to 60 in 3.1 seconds," Speckman also said during the interview. "She's clearly having to swerve to miss a vehicle going the wrong way on a one-way street. If her foot should happen to hit the accelerator, it's like a rocket ship. I don't know why they have to make a car that does that."

Because some people WANT a car that does that. There's no reason you had to buy it though. Entirely your fault. Blame yourself. Every single day of the rest of your life blame yourself.

To be fair, these are research projects. The things they describe usually work, but may not have all the properties you would need to make a commercially successful battery. For example, the cell voltage; it should be as high as possible, some cell types are below 1 volt, which is really too low. Or it may not have very good current capacity, so you'd need excessively large membranes. Or loads of other things.

This is primary research, they're announcing that they've managed to get excellent stability, via some mechanism; even if this particular cell doesn't tick all the boxes, the same trick might be applied to other cells to give a really good battery.

And while I haven't read this paper, for a paper to be published it nearly always has to reveal what they did in sufficient detail that it could be reproduced.
